Transferred by Jay Ashley



Digitally remastered using a custom built, Dual-DAW, nicknamed Bertha, by Completed on October 31, 2004.

Set 1 and Set 2 were processed separately in an attempt to get the sound between the two sources as close as possible at flat setting. The original source for set 1 appears to have some limiting or audio compression applied which accounts for the difference in levels between the sets, and also made the task of matching the sound that much more difficult.

The mix starts out rough and settles in at about 1 minute in to track d1t01.

There are phase issues throughout due to the matrix recording techniques, and also due to the in and out of the vocal mics.

You take my comments wrongly. Brent was awesome in many shows, from early days like fall 79 ie cape cod to 88 shows. Just dont like his sound in the later of his shows and he is too high in the mix.
Like another reviewer said Im pretty sure i was at this show , my run was 88 to 91 and never saw a bad one believe.

Subject: Fairly certain -
- that I was at that show. Seems we had no idea where we parked afterward and just sat in the warm summer parking lot until enough cars left. No "heat" on the street either - must have come down on the side of local commerce and let the heads be.

That would be in contrast to a later Tinely Park show nearby.......

Dude this is a great show, if you don't like brent you have 19 years give or take to listen to, but you mentioned Donna, so that gives you 1965-1971 and late 1990-1995. Get over it Brebt is awesome. honky Tonk, comparing Brent to donna...WOW.

for some reason this show stands out in my memory 20 years later it sounds really good, but in my memory, i felt raindrops on my face during looks like rain, terrapin was a journey that i STILL remember, the other one was a massive trip into the darkness, and morning dew pulled the universe into the light i know it sounds a little average to listen to, but this is, and will always be, one of my all time favorite shows, out of many that i attended maybe there was something in the water in indiana?

Well, with a bunch of show seen and remember some, I have relistened to most of them. For some odd reason, this Morning Dew is just so warm.... Jerry to this very day has my hair standing up when I hear him on this particular one right here. I was there, but don't remember being caught up "in the moment". WOW, we were really treated to some good stuff. I am glad I took advantage of it while I could. BTW look at the date of this posting.... Oh I forgot, I always liked the laugh machine hahahahaha .

This sounds great! A tight unit. Decent 'board. Makes you appreciate the talents of Mydland!

Subject: Another Passably Stimulating Performance...
Augmented by an extraordinary recording/remastering.

It's all good pretty much throughout but you must play it loudly to receive the true benefits of this luxurious sound reproduction.

Morning Dew is a resounding vignette of magic passing thus psychically, throughly.

Experience it with trepidation if you dare.

One of those proverbial "sleeper" concerts that gets overlooked by reviewers of the phonic lore.

Have to give it 4 stars, reluctantly, but the recording is so accurate it could deserve a full five.
